remove default MIME-type

Yes, right from that standpoint. But Apache _does_ know what he sends, because
he was configured so. DefaultType is not a hidden feature, it's well documented.
The DefaultType _can_ be changed. If someone wants Apache to send another
Content-type for a certain resource, he has to configure the server properly.
There are a lot of possibilities (mime.types, ForceType, AddType, (DefaultType),
magic, filters, mod_rewrite ...). It's at least possible to set DefaultType
application/octet-stream, which is never wrong if he doesn't it better.

(But again, I agree, DefaultType None, may be useful sometimes).
